This book is written in Japanese, not in English. The first edition was published in 1937. Printed and bound in Japan. Dark green buckram binding with crisp red-stamped archaic image to the front board and with crisp gilt-stamped Japanese characters to the spine. A 1-inch chip at the top of the front board. Some rubbing but overall a fairly clean binding. 11.75 x 9 inches. Gently bumped spine head and tail and with fairly sharp corners. Text block firmly bound in. Color frontispiece of a mirror from a Tokyo collection. About 58 pages of text. With CXX monochrome plates. The plates on medium-weight, semi-stiff matte stock. No remainder marks. Tiny sticker from previous bookseller neatly pasted to the pastedown. English title in pencil to the pastedown. Else a very clean copy, and still rather tight. Gently read. A Very Good Minus copy. All in all a desirable copy of an extremely scarce work featuring outstanding specimens from the Ancient Tombs of Chin-ts'un, Loyang.
